The Arizona Diamondbacks and Houston Astros meet Saturday in MLB action at Minute Maid Park.

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a wine after splitting their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have five straight games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Walker leads the Diamondbacks with 53 hits and 32 RBI while David Peralta and Nick Ahmed have combined for 99 hits and 54 RBI. Luke Weaver gets the ball, and he is 1-7 with a 6.70 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. This will be Weaver’s first career game against the Astros.

The Houston Astros look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Astros have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Astros have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Carlos Correa leads the Astros with 47 hits and 23 RBI while Kyle Tucker and Yuli Gurriel have combined for 91 hits and 61 RBI. Cristian Javier gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 3.22 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season. This will be Javier’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 10-25 in their last 35 road games, 1-7 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series and 6-21 in their last 27 overall. The Astros are 4-1 in their last 5 interleague home games, 37-14 in their last 51 Saturday games and 55-22 in their last 77 home games. The over is 4-0-1 in Diamondbacks last 5 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Astros last 4 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

Luke Weaver has allowed six runs and 13 hits in his last 14.1 innings while Cristian Javier has allowed three runs and six hits in his last 13.2 innings. Backing Weaver isn't an option, but I'm not running to the window to back the Astros and big juice, as they look nothing like the team we're used to seeing. With Weaver and his struggles on the mound, I'll lean toward the over on this small total.
